I pride myself on not being scared of anything.
I have no phobias. I’m not scared of heights, large open spaces, spiders, water or even public speaking.
I was, I repeat, was, scared to use Greenstuff haha.
I know many of you are all over Greenstuff already. I’ve seen what you’ve done and have admired it but when I’ve thought of using I’ve always put it in the the too hard basket. After talking to Wudugast and watching a bazillion youtubes I discovered two things. Bazillion isn’t actually a number AND Greenstuff didn’t look tooooooooo complicated. I took the leap and bought a small stick (Roll-up type thing, for those of you who know what Roll-ups were. Yum) of it.
I was nervous an clumsy at first much like my first time with something else. It was sticky and weird, again much like my first time with something else…
I used lube, didn’t have Vasolene, so I used a bit of cooking oil on my fingers and tools. Hahaha this Blog wasn’t meant to be full of innuendos I promise!
First I used the Greenstuff to fill some holes and gaps on a model. Then I made a mutant type arm.
Then I made a creepy scarecrow looking head. Not bad for a first attempt. Probably a bit too big but this particular model is meant to be all out of proportion. Eg Ork arms with human legs and torso.
I now feel less fearful and a little more confident to play with Greenstuff. I’d like to thank Wudugast for his encouragement .
I’d love to hear your comments but mostly your advice. Go easy on me fellas hehe.
